Challengers News · DeBoer Qualifies For State Ski Meet


Some athletes carry their team. There’s no question about that for Cascade Christian’s Haylee DeBoer. She IS the team- the ski team, that is; and she bears the load with great ability.

DeBoer qualified for the state championships March 3-5 with her performance over the weekend at a slalom double header meet at Mt. Ashland.

In the first race, Haylee finished second to Ashland’s Kariana Austbo. In the second, De Boer was a winner with times of 44.77 and 45.83, for a combined 1:30.60. That will send her on to state!

Overall- Haylee DeBoer finished 3rd in the overall slalom, 5th in the giant slalom, and fourth in the combined overall. This after missing much of the season due to illness, and thus having limited opportunities to qualify.

That’s pretty impressive! Good luck at state!
